Comedian/actor Mike E. Winfield has joined the Season 2 cast of critically acclaimed digital drama series, "Conversations in LA." Perhaps best known for his role on "The Office" and stand-up comic appearances on "BET's Comicview," and "Late Show With David Letterman," among others, Winfield joins previously announced guest stars Sterling Jones, Jack Plotnick, and Rebecca Metz for the single-shot series.
CONVERSATIONS IN LA, is a dark comedy from East Coast native Anne Marie Cummings (creator, writer, director, star) and Immediate Vision Productions that tells a modern-day story about a young Hispanic man (Gustavo Velasquez), who’s already had a fair amount of sexual experience and is genuinely searching for a meaningful relationship whose world collides with Michelle Macabee (Cummings) who is dealing with career transition, pet loss, and menopause. While Michelle’s age is something Gus grapples with, for a time, it’s Michelle who’s torn between her desire to just have sex with the young Gus versus be in a loving, committed relationship with him.
Michelle turns to her pet loss therapist for help and her two close friends, Alex and Nicole (in the midst of denying their own mid-life crisis’), witness Michelle’s transformation and become obsessed with redirecting her life down a path they deem acceptable and “normal.” On the surface, CONVERSATIONS IN LA is about finding what makes us feel alive, whatever stage of life we’re in, but beneath that, it’s a story about self discovery and finding who we are without the influences of those around us.
Cummings and Velasquez received 2017 Daytime Emmy nominations in the lead acting categories for Daytime Digital Drama Series, as well as Vanita Harbour for her supporting role.
CONVERSATIONS IN LA is currently filming Season 2. Winfield is repped by The Gersh Agency and El Centro Management. www.
